20 Years of CM9798: Prize Bundle Time!

Greetings! We’ve been building towards this moment since I got back on the blogging horse in the summer after a short break. We’ve had a lovely time, but with the final of the CM9798 Cup imminent, that means we are just days away from the 20th anniversary of the release of CM9798. I’ve given away a couple of prizes so far, but this is the main event.

If you want to win, all you need to do is predict this Sunday’s final between Ajax and Borussia Dortmund. You need to predict the score, then the first goalscorer and finally the time of the first goal. To give you a chance, here are the starting lineups:

How to Enter

To win my retro bundle, full of 90s goodness, all I need you to do is re-tweet this tweet (below) and reply with your prediction, e.g. 5-5 Curtis 26. If you don’t retweet, your entry won’t be counted. Entries close at 12pm Saturday 28th October.


Here’s the prizes within said bundle:

Warning! Boring explanation below:

How the tiebreak works

Let’s say two entrants predict the correct score. Everybody else is essentially eliminated at this point, leaving just the two correct entrants. If either entrant has got the correct first goalscorer, they will win. If both do, or indeed neither of you do, then it’ll go to your time of first goal guess. Whoever is closer will win. In the event that both entrants are equally incorrect (e.g. it is 80th and entrant one said 75th and the other 85th) then the winner will be decided by a coin toss and I will question ever running something like this again.

Entrants must follow @cm9798 on Twitter or like cm9798.co.uk on Facebook.
